As Dua Lipa said, "One, don't pick up the phone... like, ever!" People who actually like talking on the phone are in the minority, because it's a proven fact that there is no form of conversation worse than talking on a phone. Seriously. Only those of us that dread phone calls will understand these hellish situations.

1) You've literally ignored nearly EVERY phone call you've ever received.

2) Calls from your Mum and your Nan are the only exceptions.

3) You ignore calls from your friends all the time.

4) And after they call, you wait an appropriate amount of time before texting back with a solid excuse as to why you didn't answer.

"I'm on a train! What's up!?"

5) If you're old enough to remember the landline, you'll have fond memories of pretending you're not home when a friend calls.


6) Let's not even get started on calls from unknown numbers.

7) Your mind is in constant battle about whether you should reject the call or let it ring out.

8) It's basically either have people knowing you rejected them, or have to deal with a voicemail afterwards.

Both are death sentences tbh.

9) Your favourite invention is the Silence button. 

If you can't hear it, it's not happening.

10) There's no way in HELL you would call for a food delivery.

You'd rather starve tbh.

11) You've ended up going to work sick once or twice because you couldn't bring yourself to call in.

12) The day your parents made you make your own doctor's appointment was the worst day of your life.

13) You've planned every single phone call you've ever made - right down to the greeting and sign off.

14) You can't decide what's worse... making a call, or getting a call. 

You have to be alone if you're going to mentally prepare yourself to do either.

15) The awkwardness of losing signal is the WORST. 

Especially if you're talking to someone you don't know.
